Sweden is awesome

A little boring, perhaps, but still fairly awesome. And by awesome I mean humanitarian. I've always had something of a soft spot for the Scandanavian countries anyway.

On the other hand, it makes for relatively unexciting foreign policy. Which could be a significant problem, especially for people like me, whose entire raison d'etre is foreign policy problems (creating them, exacerbating them, letting them spiral out of control, clamouring for military
intervention, stressing the exceptional nature of the crisis etc etc ad infinitum).

But then, the Scandanavians seemed to get all that out of their system a while ago, and are civilized countries now.
